For England Blanc De Noir Extra Brut 2011

Grape Variety: 
100% Pinot Noir (Old Vine)
Tasting Note: 
With zero dosage, this muscular fizz offers aromas of creamy pears. lemon meringue and roasted hazelnuts with and a girdle of oxidative and umami notes. The palate is equally potent; marzipan, lemon curd, forest fruits and wild honey. It has a rich and creamy palate, a textural wash and a tangy, pithy finish. Lengthy and rich with rare concentration--a true treat from this historic house.
